Everything is of value now. Days when the sun is low, the temperatures are low, the spirits are low are part of the composting occurring now everywhere. Your old thoughts, old patterns of belief, and memories of dashed expectations keep you keen and alive. As our beloved Rumi says:
This rain-weeping and sun-burning twine together to make us grow.
Keep your intelligence white-hot and your grief glistening, so your life will stay fresh.
This freshness of spirit is the possibility every day, for it is continually new on Earth now. The air is fresher, the waters are clearer, the forests are dense and still but deeply alive. Your old childhood and adolescent worries are not real to you in present time. Neither are your future worries or perpetuated images of old age. Only today is.
When you align with the great I AM Presence, as you do so well every morning and throughout the day, you flood your being with light. The old energies and frequencies leave you and seep down into the great being known as Gaia. She receives them all and immediately they become material for composting and renewal. You can imagine the dense matter crumbling into dark soil, intertwining with deep roots and ancient waters. The light that rises in you comes directly from what has been discarded. Your releasing feeds Gaia. She feeds you back in light what you let go of.
This is a deep mystery of transmutation. It is going on around you and through you. It is happening for your best good and the good of all. It is another gracious gift of the Mother that your old despair can bear fruit in these ways. Your old sorrows yield great light into the world. This is happening through you right now.
We do not sentimentalize sorrow. We value its release. We acknowledge your growth in this manner. We love you for your resilience and your courage. We comfort you in the midst of waves of emotion and we greet you as you emerge—always into more light. Breathe. Ground. Release. Receive. Be.
Be our dear One, again and again. We love you.
